Non DEAD: Winter Bros!!!
Sorry for the BUMP, folks, BUT had to say, they are a GREAT geezer circuit show, for sure! I had never seen either of them, but they have held up amazingly well. Of course, Johnny has some health issues (sight, fraility, etc), so he sits while playing, but their voices were great, playing was outstanding, and their bands were both out of this world. Drumming was passable, good I'd say, but both bass players, and esp lead players were just unreal. Doug Rappoport, lead player for Edgar, is quite the up and coming kid wonder, if you ask me. And Johnny played a much more driving TX blues/rock than I had been led to expect from reviews of his more straight up blues outings of late. Man, that guy is something.
If you have the chance to see them, I'd put them in almost the same category as Winwood/Clapton in the sense of having held up well, more than capable of putting on an extremely high energy show, and keeping you more than entertained with anything but a geezer circuit show of some fading rock and blues stars...
Oh, and the Edgar Winter sax lead on "our" own TOYLLight was really something...
Hey BD and others--I think there was a thread on them, but can't find it easily.
Are they doing well these days? Latest tour info? Worth the Big Bucks if the chance arises?
Any input appreciated...
